US President Donald Trump learns about Don Bradman from Australian billionaire

The First Lady and I are honored to welcome you and Jennifer to the White House and we look forward to hosting you for a state dinner tonight in the Rose Garden.

"There was no discussion about anything else", Morrison, who made a state visit to the White House on Friday, told journalists, according to a transcript.

They included lawyer and former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, cupboard secretaries, members of Congress and Australian friends together with legendary golfer Greg Norman.

[Donald Trump, U.S. President]: "Prime Minister Morrison, Mrs. Morrison, members of the Australian delegation and distinguished guests, today we celebrate the long-cherished and unwavering friendship between the United States and Australia".

Visitors on the second state dinner held by Donald Trump appeared intent on celebrating regardless of nationwide safety and presidential politics casting extra shadows on to the POTUS. Musical groups from the US military will provide entertainment.

The menu features Dover sole entree and apple tart a la mode.

Australia was last a recipient of a US state visit in 2006, when President George W. Bush feted Prime Minister John Howard.

Trump spoke of the "unbreakable bond" between the two countries and honored the "100 years of mateship" that was celebrated last year to mark 100 years since troops from the United States and Australia fought alongside each other in World War I.

"It's so attractive and it will be so different", Trump said earlier Friday about his first state dinner in more than a year, noting that he had watched a rehearsal the night before.

Trump and Morrison will participate in a day filled with meetings, a joint press conference and a lavish state dinner, the second one of Trump's presidency.

The White House says the Trumps gave the Morrisons a custom-made leather photo album hand-inscribed with 23-karat gold and a Tiffany & Co. pewter bowl engraved with the presidential seal and the signatures of both Trumps.

The leaders met for talks on trade, space, China and Afghanistan.

The dinner on Friday night was hosted outdoors in the iconic Rose Garden decorated with a carpet and circular and rectangular tables for the guests. Morrison will also be treated to lunch at the State Department.
